Obviously, photos can be great educational tools with English Language Learners and with any students (see The Best Ways To Use Photos In Lessons). I post about many photo galleries, also called slideshows. To do it in a little more organized way, though, I recently began this weekly feature called “Photo Galleries Of The Week.” This post is a “round-up” of online slideshows I’m adding to various “The Best…” lists:
Most Spectacular Shots From 50 Years of Robotic Solar System Exploration is from Wired. I’m adding it to The Best Images Taken In Space.
Astronomy photos of the year is from The Washington Post. I’m adding it to the same list.
A Fighter With a Camera in Apartheid-Era South Africa is a New York Times slideshow. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Nelson Mandela.
What prehistoric art tells us about the evolution of the human brain is a slideshow from Slate. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About Prehistoric Cave Paintings.
15 Buildings That Don’t Look Like Buildings is a slideshow from TIME. I’m adding it to The Best Images Of Weird, Cool & Neat-Looking Buildings (& Ways To Design Your Own).
The world’s worst typos – in pictures is from The Guardian.
School Lunches From Around The World is a slideshow from The Huffington Post. I’m adding it to The Best Sites For Learning About The World’s Different Cultures.
